"Good to know -  I don't know why I haven't considered it, but using a Drum brake in the generator hub in the class would be simple. Sturmey has 2 versions of their drum brake+generator hub that I have used on many bikes. "

Legacy Frameworks replied to Legacy Frameworks's discussion Fall Classes - What would you like to learn?

They rode away with the knowledge of building a wheel and with their new generator lights lighting their way. Fall is upon us and it's time to go back to school - we are looking for suggestions for transportation related bike classes - how you can get your bike in…See More
